The City of Groningen owes him for his design of the Groninger Museum which truly applies for his fixing point that objects should be designed to “find friends”, to catalise attention and move the heart of its potential users.

Tunisian-born couturier Azzedine Alaïa has died in Paris at the age of 77. Alaïa was one of the industry’s few designers who followed his own conventions in creating his collections and only held fashions shows when he had something to show. In July he showed a surprise couture collection in which Naomi Campbell made a rare catwalk appearance. The Groninger Museum showed his work in 1998 and in 2011-2012.

R.D.E. (Ootje) Oxenaar (1929-2017)

http://www.holeinthedyke.com/images/hitd-news/ox-402.jpg http://www.holeinthedyke.com/images/hitd-news/ox2-402.jpg
Famous Dutch designer Ootje Oxenaar passed away. Oxenaar studied visual arts at the Royal Academy of Art in The Hague. From 1966 until 1985 he worked for the Nederlandsche Bank, where he designed two series of well known gulden-banknotes in bright colors.
Using themes like the Dutch landscape, birds, sunflowers and a lighthouse (quite revolutionary in those days) he succeeded in creating beautiful and colorfull banknotes that still make it hard for the Dutch to get used to the Euro. He was the Director of Art and Design, Post and Telecommunications of The Netherlands.
